Ashley Jablow

I'm an MBA with a passion for social media, social innovation, corporate responsibility, and environmental sustainability. My background is in fundraising for children's health and education organizations, and I've dabbled in everything from sustainability reporting and corporate philanthropy to cause marketing and nonprofit branding.

It's a true pleasure being part of our dynamic, passionate and diverse community and I look forward to continuing to collaborate with everyone to design better, together!

Ashley has zeroed in on the next step needed to make Universal Design the default in building. Concepts don't go anywhere if they can't be marketed successfully.
